Kendra - My name is Kendra Manz. I live in Edmonton, Alberta and attend Avonmore Junior High in the Nelly McClung program for young women. I belong to the Newspaper club and am very active in volunteer work around the city. I enjoy reading, writing stories and poems, two of which have been published, and the outdoors. I enjoy science, and because I am interested in a career in Forensics or Pathology, will likely attend W. P. Wagner High School for it’s Forensics program.

Abstract:This study explored whether teenage girl’s perceptions about their health and body image were impacted by the current focus on obesity. Body mass index (BMI) scores and subjective ratings of health perceptions and behaviors on a self-administered survey were gathered from 49 subjects. Findings from chi square analyses indicate that perceptions of teenage girls, particularly those with a higher BMI, are negatively impacted.
